Hairy Maclary's Showbusiness
It's the annual show at the Riverside Cat Club and it's all a bit too much for Hairy Maclary, who's tied to a tree outside. He eventually breaks free and bounds into the cat show, causing all manner of mayhem and upsetting all the cats. But there's one last surprise ...guess who wins the prize for scruffiest cat!

About Lynley Dodd
Lynley Dodd graduated from the Elam School of Art in Auckland with a diploma in Fine Arts, majoring in sculpture. She went on to teach art before taking a break to start a family. She began to work as a freelance illustrator and collaborated with author Eve Sutton on My Cat Likes to Hide in Boxes. There was no looking back as Lynley went on to write and illustrate her own books for children. Exuberant artwork and bouncy rhymes come together perfectly in books like Slinky Malinki and Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy. As well as being a visual delight, these are some of the most rewarding books for children and adults to read out loud.
'Dodd's pictures are good, but the rhyming verse is even better -- delightful to read aloud and soon learned by heart' -- Independent on Sunday 'A child's best introduction to books' -- The Times
